Kelly Loeffler on Principles & Values



WNBA players endorsing opponent is "cancel culture"

In 2010, Loeffler became a co-owner of the Atlanta Dream--the WNBA's Georgia-based team. The league's players openly endorsed her opponent in the middle of the season. Loeffler responded to the players' bold move of supporting her opponent by accusing them of being "more concerned with playing politics than basketball."

"This is just more proof that the out of control cancel culture wants to shut out anyone who disagrees with them," she added.

Donated maximum $2800 to Trump recount fund

When asked for a response to the president's statements about the election and Georgia's role in it, Sen. Kelly Loeffler's office directed media inquiries to the senator's Tweet, posted before he spoke at the White House, in which she said she is "praying for four more years of Donald Trump." The AJC has learned that Loeffler has also donated the maximum $2,800 contribution to the Trump campaign's "Recount Account," a fund designated for financing post-election recounts and election contests.

Atlanta's "most expensive real estate transaction ever"

[Called] "Descante," the 15,000-square-foot mansion that Loeffler and her husband bought in 2009 for $10.5 million, was the "most expensive real estate transaction ever in the city of Atlanta."

Endorsed QAnon candidate for fighting "radical left"

Loeffler celebrated an endorsement from Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Georgia Republican congressional candidate who has voiced support for the QAnon conspiracy theory. The two appeared together at a campaign stop. The senator showered Greene with praise, calling her exemplary of "conservative values" and a warrior fighting the "radical left." "What impressed me with Kelly is I found out that she believes a lot of the same things that I believe," Greene said from behind a Loeffler campaign podium.

My first vote will be to end the impeachment sham

As Georgia's next United States senator, I will champion pro-life policies, protect our Second Amendment rights, and work for Georgians and all Americans to keep our country great. But my first vote--and arguably the most important one--will be to end the impeachment sham so that we can get back to work on the real challenges facing our great country.

Impeachment "is a partisan exercise"

Loeffler said, "I had the opportunity to talk to some of my colleagues in Washington and start thinking about the process. But look, like I said, I think this is a partisan exercise that I hope we'll quickly move through and get back to the business of m

Impeachment: no evidence, no crime

Loeffler said, "I think it is important that we get back to work for our country," Loeffler said. "I don't think the case has been made for impeachment. I don't think there is evidence. I don't see a crime. But what I am going to do is work with my colleagues in the Senate and make sure that we follow due process as appropriate to the Constitution. And then get back to work."

Will abide by Senate ethics rules, won't address conflicts

She faces questions about whether she'll serve on committees that oversee the financial industry or cast votes that could influence her husband's company or the Bakkt cryptocurrency firm she runs. Loeffler said she would abide by Senate ethics rules but would not say how she planned to manage her finances or whether she would sit out votes that could influence her business. Nor would she say whether she would pursue positions on committees that have oversight over the financial industry.
